Abstract

The corrosion reactions of UHV evaporated lithium films with SiO//2, B//2O//3, and multi-component glass surfaces studied with XPS are used to model the corrosion of glass headers by electrodeposition of lithium in Li/SO//2 batteries. SiO//2 exhibits little resistance to matrix breadown within the XPS sampling region at modest temperatures ( less than 80 degree C), whereas B//2O//3 appears to form a passivating layer which limits the extent of reaction. Reactions of lithium deposited on multi-component glasses are characterized by increased resistance to network former reduction, yet show unusual activity for alkali and alkaline earth modifiers in the surface region.
